    I too have made the same switch for the same reasons. I always keep red and black of both versions so i have an assortment.

    Hey, are you gonna eat that?

      I'm a white nylon .38mm Jim Dunlop user through and through. I have other picks, but I always tend to use the aforementioned Jim Dunlop. They've been my pick of choice since 1996! I prefer thin picks for both electric and acoustic.

        Started with Fender Medium, first the regular picks and then the triangle ones because it was 3 picks in one.
        Then switched to Dunlop Big Stubby 3mm
        Then switched to Gator Grip .96
        Then Gator Grip 1.14
        Then many years later Star Picks 1.0
        Started playing Gator Grip .96 again recently.

        I've played lots and lots and lots and lots of picks.

          It's fun to catch Fender pics on fire.....they go up like flash paper.

              .94 Black Fangs or 1.0 Flow picks.

              Black Fangs have a better grip than the Tortex, but if you're someone always dropping your pick, the Flow pick is it.

                Guitar picks are life!

                Seriously, grab a few at the store and try them at home. Forget about the shape, material, thickness, etc. for a minute. Play some stuff and listen. See if you can pick (pun intended) any differences between them. The way you attack the string, the angle, you name it. Everything becomes more obvious when you start trying different picks.

                For my purposes, I hybrid pick a lot. I wanted a pick that was small and manageable enough for me to switch back and forth when playing harmonics. I also wanted a pick that gave me a nice round, fat sound. Something similar to my fingers, but not quite. I narrowed it down to Jazz III sizes, but still tried a myriad of materials and thicknesses.

                For the most part, I can hang with both red and black Jazz IIIs. I prefer the EJ and JP signature models. But my favorite is the Fender 354. Of course, them a-holes at the big F have discontinued them, so I will eventually go through my stash. I have been looking for suitable replacements for a couple of years and settled on a D'Andrea Pro Plec. Not the same, really. But it has a nice character to it.
